Quality Silver – Sensible Prices. We are offering for sale. A delightful pair of silver casters made by the most important British silversmith of the early post-war period – Leslie Durbin. Leslie Gordon Durbin (LGD maker’s mark) was apprenticed to and worked for Omar Ramsden and the skills shown in his work are equal to those of his master. These arts & crafts casters beautifully display these skills and they have a good chunky feel in the hand (see weight of 125 grams each). They are larger than typical pepper pots, (for which purpose they could be used), and so are probably better termed as muffineers and could sprinkle flour, cinnamon or sugar. They both feature a nicely detailed cast finial modeled as a leaping salmon. Inside the bases are removable caps with a bayonet fitting for refilling or emptying.
